Hamburg to make offer for Aly Ghazal
Hamburg, who secured their Bundesliga status in a dramatic 3-2 aggregate win over Bundesliga 2. side Karlsruhe in the promotion playoff series, are thought to be extremely interested in the Egyptian.
Ghazal, who has been solid for his Portuguese side since joining in 2013, was a key squad player this season, making a total of 37 appearances, scoring two goals in the process.
Reports have emerged that the Bundesliga side will be making a formal offer for Ghazal’s services in the coming days after being impressed with the midfielder’s performances this season.
Hamburg have been interested in Ghazal for quite some time, and Maisfutebol are reporting that the Germans have contacted a representative of Ghazal to try and push through the move, with Hamburg looking to bolster their squad ahead of the new Bundesliga season.
Hamburg finished the Bundesliga season in 16th place, forcing them into a playoff tie against Karlsruhe to decide their position in the German leagues for the upcoming season. The German side won in controversial circumstances, with former teammate of Mohamed Salah and Mohamed El-Nenny, Marcelo Diaz, scoring a 90th minute free-kick to send the tie into extra time. They managed to score another crucial away goal in extra time, winning the clash 3-2 on aggregate to consolidate their position in the Bundesliga, keeping alive their record of being the only team in Bundesliga history to never be relegated since the leagues inception in 1963 in the process.
